Happy Independence day my fellow patriots! And to our English readers let me say, OK we probably should have paid the taxes. You guys did huge favors for us in the French and Indian war (I hear you guys call it the Seven Years War, but whatever). But that's all water under the bridge, we are the first among friends now right? And who cares that you guys once burned our capitol? We attacked you in the battle of New Orleans after the peace was signed in that war, so we are basically even, right? So, lets make like Steve McQueen and celebrate together.
And now the news
For the right price, this is a good pick up. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Ledley King is a Spurs player forever, but he needs to be replaced.
Liverpool are said to be offering £2.5 million and to loan him back to Caen for 18 months. I think the kid is worth £4 million now, loan him back for 12 months, lets see how much of that Fernando Torres money is still around.
This is so many things, stunningly creative, creepy, and kind of awesome.
£6 million sounds about right. It's not what he is worth (£9-10 million in my mind) but Niko is so consistently underrated its gross, so I'll take 6 for him.
Whats happening around SB Nation after the jump
I was at the MLS draft when he was taken first overall and he buzz about this kid was incredible. I'm glad to see that he is finally getting in the game, Unfortunately this goal is so good that it ruins it for Andy Najar who scored this screamer just hours before.
Its no secret I love reading Coming Home Newcastle, so it's great to see some more activity over there after a lengthy absence of posts.
Get it? Screwed! Because of the prostitutes. No seriously Mexico are totally screwed.
